Fulham v Brentford Championship, 14th April 5.30pm
Fulham won yet again in midweek and they moved themselves up into the top two. It’s nothing less than they deserve after having put together some incredible form. Now comes the challenge of keeping it going and locking down the automatic promotion. They get a home game against Brentford on the weekend, the Bees having found a bit of form with a three-match winning streak going.
Fulham v Brentford Betting Odds*
Fulham 4/5, Draw 5/2, Brentford 7/2* (Betting Odds taken at 3:51 p.m. on April 10th, 2018)
Fulham News and Form
The Cottagers are now unbeaten in their last twenty league games (W16 D4) in a stunning run of form. They are in the top two now and have just the four games to go. Can they hang on and keep this form going? They have won each of their last four in the league with a clean sheet and Fulham to win to nil at bet365 is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:55 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). That’s not a bad option under the circumstances. The Cottagers have won eleven of their last twelve at home (D1) and nine of those were clean sheet victories. They have produced some stunning form and overall this season are W12 D7 L2 at Craven Cottage. They are on a thirteen match scoring streak at home and they have produced an average of 1.7 goals per game at home this term, while at the back they have only conceded 17 in 21 games. In the bet365 correct score market a Fulham 1-0 option is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:55 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Only leaders Wolves have scored more goals than Fulham have done this season.
Brentford News and Form
The Bees have picked up their form with a three-match winning streak going at the moment. Two of those were on the road actually and they have won three of their last four away from home (L1). However, this is the third time this season they have put together a three-match winning streak and the last two came to an end away from home. Will history repeat itself? Brentford’s last three wins have been 1-0 affairs and they have scored exactly one goal in each of their last six league outings now. Will they have enough to break what is such a powerful Fulham back line though? Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 37/40 for the fixture. Brentford are W9 D3 L9 on the road this season in the Championship and they have averaged just over a goal per game on their travels. Each of their last six away from home have ended under 2.5 goals so there is a trend running there. Of the goals they have conceded this season away from home, 60% of them have been after the halftime break and they have scored over two-thirds of their away goals after half time as well. Their recent burst of form has actually only left them four points out of the top six places.
Fulham v Brentford Head to Head
There was a 3-1 home success for Brentford when they hosted Fulham back at the start of December. The Bees are W2 D2 L1 in their last five Championship fixtures against the Cottagers. The last two between them at Craven Cottage have both ended in a draw and the Cottagers are winless in their three previous Championship home fixtures against the Bees (D2 L1). Four of the last five meetings have made it over the 2.5 goal line.
Who will win – Fulham v Brentford Predictions
The Cottagers can further stake their claim for a top-four finish with the maximum points out of this one. Their home form has been fantastic this season and even though Brentford aren’t in bad form, there’s a good chance that they will come away empty handed.
